Tuyuan / MBS

Japans Kyoto City Council voted to pass regulations on March 24, banning retail stores in the city from providing plastic bags to customers. This is the first time that relevant regulations have been issued in Japan.

According to Japans current affairs news agency, the regulations not only prohibit retailers from providing paid plastic bags, but also prohibit customers from providing free paper shopping bags that can be naturally decomposed into soil and water. The regulation will come into effect on January 1, 2021.

In case of violation of the regulations, corrective advice will be given. If the operator fails to comply with the regulations, the government will publicize the list of all operators who violate the regulations after June 1, 2021. It is reported that Guigang originally planned to implement the regulations in August 2020.

According to the previous report, at the end of 2019, Japans Ministry of environment and the Ministry of economy and industry held a seminar on plastic restriction, and finally decided that plastic bags in all retail stores in Japan would no longer be free from charge from July 2020. This regulation is applicable to stores of all industries and scales. Customers are required to charge for plastic shopping bags made of petroleum and other raw materials. The price of plastic bags will be determined by the merchants themselves. Source: author of overseas website: Wang Shanning editor in charge: Sheng Yuqing, nbjs10200
